PMID:  6985962     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A review of the pertinent literature concerning acrylic resin and its relation to allergic reactions and chemical injury has been presented. The relation of acrylic resin prostheses and materials to oral reactions and lesions is discussed and possible causes and means of evaluation are proposed. Examples of mucosal infection and mucosal disease are presented (which may mimic acrylic resin allergy) along with examples of direct chemical injury of the oral mucosa as a result of autopolymerizing prosthetic techniques.
